Postfix 1.1 Patch 08 available

Postfix 1.1 patch 08 fixes minor problems.  This patch is released
in order to stay in sync with the bugfixes in the upcoming snapshot
release.

The official Postfix release does not change except for bugfixes
and portability patches.  New features are tried out Postfix snapshot
releases.

- Postfix no longer attempts to build with GDBM support, because
GDBM's locking behavior is broken. GDBM does not work with Sendmail,
either, so this is not a Postfix specific problem.

- The Postfix SMTP client forgot to quote whitespace etc.  in a
sender or recipient address when DNS lookup was turned off
(disable_dns_lookups = yes).  These setting are common on sites
that are disconnected from the internet, and are used when sending
mail into an SMTP-based mail content filter.

- The post-install script failed to upgrade the cleanup and flush
master.cf settings from "private" to "public" if services were
explicitly configured as private, instead of being left at the
default setting.

- Better error reporting in the postqueue command.

The patch, as well as patched Postfix source code, can be found at

Postfix snapshot 1.1.8-20020505 available

Postfix snapshot 1.1.8-20020505 is available. This release has all
the bugfixes of the official 1.1.8 release, plus some new features
and improvements.  A summary of changes is below the signature.

The difference between a snapshot and an official release is as
follows: the official release does not change except for bugfixes
and portability patches. New features are tried out in snapshot
releases.  Code that works and that stops changing becomes part of
Postfix official version 1.2.

Postfix Snapshot 1.1.9-20020512 available (Repost)

Postfix snapshot 1.1.9-20020512 catches up on some internal changes
that needed to be implemented long ago.  All bugfixes included in
snapshots will be made available for the stable release as well.

The difference between a snapshot and an official release is as
follows: the official release does not change except for bugfixes
and portability patches. New features are tried out in snapshot
releases.  Code that works and that stops changing becomes part of
Postfix official version 1.2.

- Header/body checks `reject' messages now log the client hostname
  and network address. I believe Craig Sanders asked for this.

- The Postfix SMTP and LMTP clients now properly pass on the MIME
  body type information (7BIT or 8BITMIME), provided that the sender
  properly specifies MIME body type information via the `SMTP MAIL
  FROM' command, via the `sendmail -B' command line option, or via
  the Content-Transfer-Encoding: message header.

- The above also applies to mail that is returned as undeliverable.

- All the above changes rely on the presence of additional information
  in Postfix queue files:  client hostname, client address, SMTP
  HELO hostname, and MIME body type.  This information is compatible
  with older releases, except when you go back to an older Postfix
  release and use "postsuper -r" to move already queued mail back
  to the maildrop queue. Postfix official version 1.1.9 will be
  fully compatible with this information (by ignoring it).

Postfix official version 1.1 patch 09 available

Postfix 1.1 patch 09 brings you the usual minor fixes that also
appeared in recent snapshots, plus a change that closes an obscure
relaying loophole with user <at> domain <at> postfix-style.virtual.domain
addresses for virtual domains with  <at> domain.name catch-all patterns.

This change introduces a new parameter, with backwards compatible
default settings. To allow Postfix to receive user <at> domain <at> domain
addresses, specify "resolve_dequoted_address = no" in main.cf (quote
the address localpart as per RFC 822, don't look for  <at>  etc.  inside
the address localpart).  Although this is technically more correct,
it also opens opportunities for mail relay attacks when Postfix
provides backup MX service for Sendmail systems.

For the other minor changes, see the HISTORY file extract below.

Postfix snapshot 1.1.9-20020513 available

Postfix snapshot 1.1.9-20020513 will be the last in a while.  It
brings an updated LDAP client module, and ties up some loose ends
from last week.

The difference between a snapshot and an official release is as
follows: the official release does not change except for bugfixes
and portability patches. New features are tried out in snapshot
releases.  Code that works and that stops changing becomes part of
Postfix official version 1.2.

- An updated LDAP client module with new query result filtering,
  and with improved handling of dead LDAP servers.

- A new configuration parameter (resolve_dequoted_address) that
  allows you to choose between technical correctness and safety,
  when resolving addresses of the form user <at> domain <at> domain.

Postfix official 1.1.10 and snapshot 1.1.10-20020514 available

The following changes were made in the official release (1.1.10)
and in the snapshot release (1.1.10-20020514).

- Bugfix: the new code for header address quoting sometimes did
  not null terminate strings so that arbitrary garbage could appear
  at the end of message headers.  Reported by Ralf Hildebrandt.

- Safety: user <at> domain <at> domain is no longer accepted by the
  permit_mx_backup UCE restriction (unless Postfix is configured
  with "resolve_dequoted_address = no"). By Victor Duchovny.

The difference between a snapshot and an official release is as
follows: the official release does not change except for bugfixes
and portability patches. New features are tried out in snapshot
releases.  Code that works and that stops changing becomes part of
Postfix official version 1.2.

Postfix snapshot 1.1.11-20020527 with MIME support

Postfix snaphot 1.1.11-20020527 introduces the following features:

- Real MIME support. This improves built-in content filtering
  efficiency and accuracy, and improves inter-operability with mail
  systems that cannot receive 8-bit mail. More details below in
  the RELEASE_NOTES and HISTORY file summaries.

- Selective content filtering. In header/body_check patterns,
  specify "FILTER transport:nexthop" for mail that needs filtering.
  This requires different cleanup servers before and after the
  filter, with header/body checks turned off in the second cleanup
  server.  Examples for this new feature still need to be developed.
  This feature overrides the main.cf content_filter setting.

The difference between a snapshot and an official release is as
follows: the official release does not change except for bugfixes
and portability patches. New features are tried out in snapshot
releases.  Code that works and that stops changing becomes part of
Postfix official version 1.2.

Postfix snapshot 1.1.11-20020528 available

Postfix snapshot 1.1.11-20020528 makes minor refinements to the
20020527 snapshot. This will be the last release for a while.

- On request by Matthias Andree, strict_8bitmime is now split into
  strict_7bit_headers which should reject little if any legitimate
  mail, and strict_8bitmime_body which will reject {bounces from
  qmail, bounces from older Postfix versions, and majordomo approval
  requests} which contain a valid 8-bit MIME email message. The
  old strict_8bitmime switch still exists, for convenience.

- Another major change is in the way PCRE matches multi-line message
  headers. The newline is no longer treated as a special character.
  This makes the switch from regexp less painful.

The difference between a snapshot and an official release is as
follows: the official release does not change except for bugfixes
and portability patches. New features are tried out in snapshot
releases.  Code that works and that stops changing becomes part of
Postfix official version 1.2.
